As a turn-of-the-century literary giant, Howell stood as an influential figure in the history of American letters.

Not only did he help forge standards in modern American literature with other greats such as his close friend Mark Twain and fellow writes like Stephen Crane and Emily Dickinson, but Howells also mentored a younger generation of culturally-different authors, such as African Americans like Paul Dunbar and women like Sarah Orne Jewett

Mary Austin and the American West by Susan Goodman( Book )

12 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 492 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mary Austin (1868-1934)--eccentric, independent, and unstoppable--was 20 when her mother moved the family west. Austin's first look at her new home "changed her horizons and marked the beginning of her understanding, not only about who she was, but where she needed to be." She became the voice of the American West. In 1903, she published her first book, The Land of Little Rain, a wholly original look at the West's desert and its ethnically diverse peoples. Defined by the places she lived, Austin also defined the places themselves, including Carmel, with its itinerant community of western writers, and Santa Fe, where she lived the last ten years of her life. This rich new biography explores Austin's life and achievement with resonance, depth, and understanding, telling the larger story of the emerging importance of California and the Southwest to the American consciousness.--From publisher description

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Possibly the most influential figure in the history of American letters, William Dean Howells (1837-1920) was, among other things, a leading novelist in the realist tradition, a formative influence on many of America's finest writers, and an outspoken opponent of social injustice. This biography ... enters the consciousness of the man and his times, revealing a complicated and painfully honest figure who came of age in an era of political corruption, industrial greed, and American imperialism. Written with verve and originality in a highly absorbing style, it brings alive for a new generation a literary and cultural pioneer who played a key role in creating the American artistic ethos. William Dean Howells traces the writer's life from his boyhood in Ohio before the Civil War, to his consularship in Italy under President Lincoln, to his rise as editor of Atlantic Monthly. It looks at his writing, which included novels, poems, plays, children's books, and criticism. Howells had many powerful friendships among the literati of his day; and here we find an especially rich examination of the relationship between Howells and Mark Twain. Howells was, as Twain called him, "the boss" of literary critics - his support almost single-handedly made the careers of many writers, including African Americans like Paul Dunbar and women like Sarah Orne Jewett. Showcasing many noteworthy personalities - Henry James, Edmund Gosse, H.G. Wells, Stephen Crane, Emily Dickinson, and many others - William Dean Howells portrays a man who stood at the center of American literature through the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.-Dust jacket
